first_imgManchester United star Robin van Persie has rubbished claims he needs knee surgery.Reports suggested the Old Trafford giants agreed a loan move for Radamel Falcao because there were fears about the Dutchman’s fitness.But the Holland forward insists he won’t be going under the knife any time soon.He said: “I am impressed people can pick up the imagination to invent something like that. I do not know where it comes from.“I can say with my hand on my heart I won’t be in a hospital to have the operation.”Van Persie has also told former Monaco star Falcao he should not expect to walk straight into the United team.“I welcome his arrival, he makes us better,” he added in an interview with Fox Sports NL. “At a top club you should always go for the best, which also fits my philosophy.“Falcao must fight for his place, as I also have to. We must duke with Wayne Rooney and James Wilson to see who is playing.” 1 Robin van Persie in action for Manchester United against Burnley last_img
